The Houston Rockets will play against the Los Angeles Lakers without Danuel House Jr., as Mike D’Antoni made known prior to the game, per USA Today Sports.

D’Antoni said House Jr. will not be available due to personal reasons. House has averaged 11.4 points and 5.8 rebounds per game during the playoffs.

Houston’s forward is an important rotational piece for his team, especially during the playoffs. With House Jr. not expected to play, Jeff Green could get significant minutes in Game 3 of the series tonight.
